The re-engineered SCIV blanks not only feature St. Croix's exclusive ART and IPC technology, but we've added NSi (Nano Silica) resin - a 3M technology (3M Matrix Resin) - for improved durability. We're happy to report the result is a supremely well-balanced family of technique-specific rods. Now lighter than ever, especially in the tip section with new, small-sized Fuji K Series guides, the LTs dominate the fishing conversation in cubicles across the country. Integrated Poly Curve (IPC) tooling technology. Advanced Reinforcing Technology (ART). High-modulus/high-strain SCIV graphite with NSi resin. Featuring 3M Matrix Resin for unparalleled strength and durability. Technique-specific musky and walleye series features unrivaled technology and performance. Fuji K Series Tangle-Free Concept Guides with Alconite rings and polished frames. Ideal for super braid, mono and fluorocarbon lines, the sloped frame and ring "shed" tangles before they become a problem. Fuji SK2 split reel seat for the ultimate in light weight and sensitivity. Split-grip/super-grade cork handle. Machined-aluminum wind check. Two coats of Flex Coat slow-cure finish.
